I visited this facility

I didn’t like Sterling House. I thought it was old fashioned and not very well kept. It was just an older place and a little bit outdated, but they did have activity sections. The staff was very nice too.

Sterling House of New Braunfels is very nice. It's more like small apartments. Everything is first-class, the people and the facility. We had lunch with the onsite manager, and with a couple of other people, and several people were coming to talk to us just to say hello. The lunch they served was good, but I don't know if it was their regular lunch or not, because we were in a special little garden-type dining room. For activities, I'm sure they have the normal, standard activities like bingo, trips to towns, and stuff like that. However, Sterling House is more expensive than where my mom is currently.

I visited Sterling House, which I absolutely fell in love with. I preferred Sterling House because it's smaller and doesn't seem as institutionalized. I like the smaller size, the feeling of being almost in a home or in a small motel. The cleanliness was wonderful. The people who worked there who I talked with and visited with were just excellent. The aroma of the good-smelling food was just unbelievable. I think that they give a lot better individualized care. They seem like a big family. I talked with some of the tenants who were there and visited one lady's room, so it just felt more like you're in a personal home, a private home as opposed to a facility.

The fellow who lead us around Sterling House was very warm and outgoing. He did know all the information right out. The reason we didn't like it is because it's a very small facility the rooms were tiny. There's a kitchenette rather than a kitchen. The residents were way older than they are, and that my parents would be sitting around bored a lot. Personally, I didn't really like it. I know that they just did a lot of remodeling. And I think that's probably overdue because it seems old and rundown. So that's good. But the room seems dark. I didn't like how you just walk into the front room and then right into the bedroom. There was just no personal feeling to it. It just seem like a tiny room that I couldn't wait to get out of. It didn't feel like home.

Sterling House was fine. The staff was okay. They were informative. They had beauty shop and barbershop. They had a well-kept outdoor area. The room was clean and well organized. However, it wasn't big enough and they don't have many people living there. I would want more people because they would have more activities. They gave me a calendar of their activities and they would take you to the doctors, but you had to pay extra.

Sterling House was a small facility. It felt more like being in a home versus being in an institution. The staff was very friendly and the facility seemed clean. I didn't notice anything that turned me off.

We weren't as happy with Sterling House as much as we were with the other facilities. It is nice and everything but it is not like the others, although I can't explain why. However, the living environment is friendly and the staff seems helpful. I would still recommend this place to others.

The Sterling House of New Braunfels was in the same vicinity where we were visiting the area to look at possible places for my brother's friend. The facility looked like it was well tended the grounds were neat. The outside area was ample, with plenty of seating areas to enjoy. The interior had a nice decor throughout. The variety of activities offered was impressive. Just about any hobby you might have can be accommodated and more. The staff goes out of its way to suggest stimulating things to do from gardening, to reading, playing games and outings in and around the community. The lunch we saw looked and smelled really delicious. The menu looked interesting and we were really impressed with the selections available. The rooms we viewed were all very clean, well-kept and inviting kind of resembling what you might find at a charming bed and breakfast, but more personalized. The gym equipment and exercise room was large and had a variety of options to choose from. The library had a large book selection. This facility really looked like a place that anyone would enjoy living in. We would recommend that anyone looking for a place for their loved one to live should check it out.
